Oliva Serie V Torpedo

Oliva Serie V Torpedo

Oliva Serie V Torpedo 1600 900 Giuseppe Mitolo

The Oliva Serie V Torpedo is one of eight cigars produced by the brand under the Serie V line. This series was the flagship of the Oliva Cigar Co., having been launched in 2007. 

Nicaraguan tobaccos are used for the filler (with Ligero grown in Jalapa) and the binder. The wrapper is a sun-grown Ecuadorian leaf. All the cigars in the line, including the Torpedo, are sold in SLBs of 24 cigars.

Oliva Serie V Torpedo 2

Oliva Serie V Torpedo: cocoa and hazelnut are immediately perceptible in the cold draw. A more moderate woody note and some spicy nuances are also present.

Oliva Serie V Torpedo 3

Once lit, the smoke feels very smooth and round in the mouth. It expresses a very intense earthy note, followed by less marked hints of leather and nuts. Strength is medium (3/5).

In the central section, the initial earthy note remains unchanged, which is accompanied by a woody scent of equal intensity and spicy and cocoa nuances. Strength increases slightly (3.5/5).

In the last third, the profile focuses on a trio of earth, wood, and cocoa. Strength becomes medium-full (4/5).

Overall, the Oliva Serie V Torpedo is a cigar that produces a decent smoke with intense aromas, but the profile is limited, making for a rather linear experience.
